Wrong model, bad pachage!

MITCHELL CHIRE, Amazon
2 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought 17 units. They sent me a wrong part number: ST9500420AS instead of ST9500423AS. The ST9500420AS is an old model with diferente specifications. I was charged with US$ 5.95 for the shpping for every hard disk and I expected for a great package.

Hard Drive Failed Twice

Barney J., Amazon
26 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought this drive 4 months ago. It failed within a few weeks, but I reformatted and thought it was a fluke. Should have returned it then. It just failed again, big time. Out of warranty, so I have to buy a new drive.

  • Excerpt: Quickly although it lasted. Bought this drive 4 months ago and began to develop problems at boot-up soon after a month or two. Turns out the drive was undesirable causing error immediately after error. Prevent this drive until they get the bugs worked out.

  • Excerpt: Worked nicely for a brief time. About a month soon after installing this in my pc I started getting getting crashes and blue screens. Following lots of components swapping, re-formatting and re-installs it turns out it's the challenging drive causing my concerns.
